Rwanda +10

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the beginning of the genocide in Rwanda. Not too much notice is being taken of the date by the press, no doubt because of the Shiite uprising in Iraq. Here is a CNN piece noting the quest to bring the perpetrators to justice. Mark Doyle, of the BBC, reports accusations by Paul Kagame that France was responsible for training the militia. Also from the BBC, this story gives some human perspective of what the anniversary means to the survivors.

(Incidentally, Christopher Hitchens notes a connection, albeit an indirect one, between Fallujah and Rwanda.)
